Lonely Planet comment about the place being 'well-maintained' truly holds forth. Security and check-in procedures were also impressive, without being stifling. Some adverse comments regarding manager and the kitchen in-charge are really misplaced; do not be misguided by them. The services being offer were also handy.

Location is the USP of the guest house. It is right on the Manikarnika ghat. Apart from that I have already mentioned the high standard of maintenance. Not just the young manager but a whole lot of people are ever helpful. The breakfast menu is an extensive one; the moody kitchen in-charge tosses up delicious omelettes and innovative pancakes. The old building with narrow corridors and high ceiling merge seamlessly with the overall Varanasi mood. In spite of not being a full-fledged hotel, they offered directions and suggestions for number of queries. My fourteen-month old son created continuous ruckus for all six of his meals during the stay. Every member of the staff and their family inquired about his well-being, being alarmed by his wailing.

To enjoy such a location you need to sacrifice some of the creature comforts and also need to endure certain other factors. Being on the ghats mean every time you want to go to the urban centre of Varanasi, you will be required to negotiate narrow lanes, often dark and dingy after darkness. If you are late in your room and late for dinner, you will be required to walk quite a distance before you find the nearest eatery. However, regarding all these the guest house do not have any control. The location, on the Manikarnika means there is an almost 24X7 inflow of people coming to have their relatives and acquaintances cremated. The noise at night of the chattering crowd below and the smoky smell of the human bodies being burnt -are some of the unusual experience you should be prepared for. Compared to moderate room rents services, drinks and breakfast seem a bit pricey. But none of them should be real botheration.
